Children are accepted into Nursery in the term after their 3rd birthday. Should they qualify for the Government’s 2yr old funding, places are also available for pupils the term after they turn 2. The Nursery is open to any child in Spalding and District.
The Nursery can hold up to twenty five 3 or 4 year olds and four 2 year olds, both in the morning and afternoon. We offer 15 hours free provision a week for 3 & 4yr olds or 30hrs for those working parents who are eligible. This can be taken in 3 hour daily sessions, morning or afternoon, or more flexibly, in blocks of 6 hours. There is also the facility to pay for additional hours, spaces permitting. The lunch hour will be an additional charge and a school meal can also be provided for an additional charge.
Children in Nursery regularly join in main school activities and assemblies and have the opportunity to use our extensive playground and outdoor areas. The Nursery and Reception Class teachers plan and work together very closely so that children transfer to our main school experience as smooth a transition as possible.
Parents who are considering sending their child to Nursery are most welcome to come and meet the staff and view the Nursery at work. Open evenings are held at key points throughout the year.
Application forms for a Nursery place are available from the main school office.
The Primary School has 210 places. There are seven single age classes with a limit of 30 children per class in Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.
Before your child starts at St Paul’s in September, Reception Class staff will visit you and your child at home in order to begin to develop a positive relationship. Children then attend school on a short phased start, allowing them to settle gradually into the school routine.
All admissions to school from the age of 4 are handled by the County Council. Please contact 01522 782030 (firstname.lastname@example.org.) or further details can be obtained from the school office.
